Machine Translation

Machine translation (MT) is the automated translation. It is the process used by the computer software to translate text from one natural language (eg English) into another (eg Urdu).

Is a translation, human or automated, the meaning of a text in the original (source) language must be wholly produced in the target language, ie the translation process. While on the surface seems simple but it is far more complicated. Translation is not just a word-for-word substitution. A translator must interpret and analyze all elements in the text and know how each word can influence one another. This requires extensive knowledge of grammar, syntax (sentence structure), semantics (meaning), etc., in the source and target language, and familiarity with each region.

Human and machine translation each their share of challenges. For example, no two identical individual translators produce translations of the same text in the same language pair, and it may take several rounds of revisions to meet customer satisfaction. But the greater challenge lies in how the machine translation of publishable quality translations can be finished
